I think but don't exactly remember that it's white. reach in with the handle of a screwdriver or something and give it a whap. Sometimes that will encourage the little micro-cracks in the solder to cuddle together long enough to get the fuel pump working.
Since you did get the car running with starter fluid, I doubt it's the distributor, but just because a dizzy is "new," doesn't mean they have replaced, or even tested, Honda's workaround for a CPS, which sits inside the thing. I bought a rebuilt, and the car was still stone dead. Pitched the new dizzy, went to the JY, and it fired right up. That was 60k ago.
